At most auctions, items are sold “as is – where is.” Therefore it is important to preview items before the auction and determine quality and condition so you will not be disappointed after buying.
A Buyer’s Premium of 15% of the “hammer price” for auctions will be added to each purchase to reach the total sales price. Online Webcast Bidders will be charged a total Buyer’s Premium of 15%, Unless bidding direct on Hibid, where the Buyers Premium is 12%. The total sales price is subject to applicable sales tax.

The highest bidder is the buyer. If any dispute arises between two or more bidders, the auctioneer will decide the buyer or immediately put the item up for sale again.
For online buyers we pack and ship your order in house, generally within 72 hours of receiving your payment and FFL info if applicable.
Auction bidding is not something to be afraid of. You will not buy accidentally by scratching your nose; the auctioneer knows when you are bidding seriously. On the other hand, don’t wait too long if you want an item – get your bid in early so the auctioneer has the bid before the item is sold.
The record of sale kept by the auctioneer and clerk will be taken as absolute and final in all disputes.
